i thought this would be a fun and exciting thread to give people who needed ideas, or just to share our techniques :) !

i use st. ives apricot scrub, lemon juice, intensive repair eucerin, and tretonin cream (sp?)

i use the st. ives apricot scrub everyday when i’m showering and it works as a makeup remover and it leaves my skin feeling fresh! i use lemon juice to even my skin tone, especially acne scars. i also use intensive repair eucerin lotion after i shower because i live in a really dry environment so it prevents my skin from becoming dry and keeps it smooth! and then i use tretonin cream to prevent acne :)

what are YOUR secrets?

I use Neutrogena Deep Clean creme cleanser, tretinoin cream I got from my dermatologist (only at night), Clean & Clear Morning Glow moisturizer in the morning and some random moisturizer that came with the tretinoin cream at night (but it’s very good).
I also exfoliate a couple times a week (usually with St. Ives scrub) and use the Queen Helene Mint Julep mask once a week or so.
I also like to do DIY skin care things, like about once a week I do a honey mask, it seems odd to put honey on your face but it gets rid of zits and makes your skin smooth. I also used to put lemon on my face before I went to bed because it evened & brightened my skin tone and dried up zits, but lately I haven’t been.
I also drink a lot of water with lemon (or just plain water) and green tea, it definitely has helped with my skin.

I use the clearasil acne clearing system. I don’t have severe acne, but it works to prevent breakouts from coming up in the first place. Then, for a moisturizer I use go2b moisturizer which works great and has built-in spf, which is perfect for keeping my skin healthy everyday outdoors. Also, once or twice a week I use a biore clay mask to keep my pores minimized and my skin feeling soft and smoothe.

For Uneven skin tone, try using AMBI fade cream, it works really well to get rid of any kind of dark spots or just overall uneven skin tone. It also moisturizes and has spf, so it’s a great alternative for an everyday moisturizer. It works great for old acne marks, which I have some of but have faded dramatically since I’ve used it (its been about 3 weeks of use and I see a huge difference!) :) hope this helps!

I like Omorovicza’s facial skin care line. Their gentle Buffing Cleanser is amazing. I also love their Cleansing Milk and their face mask.

I alternate between Proactiv, St Ives apricot scrub, Clean and Clear Morning Burst, and those cheap facial masks in the pouches. If I stick to one thing for too long, it stops working, so mixing it up works for me.

I use Philosophy one step facial cleanser and all about eyes from clinique for under eye moisturizer and hope in a jar from philosophy for facial moisturizer. On occasion I will use higher end products with retionol A to refresh my complexion. You will need a prescription for that though. From a dermatologist.

I use Sibu face soap and moisturizing serum. They contain seabuckthorn, which is suppose to be amazing for your skin. I like the soap a lot, but the serum might be too moisturizing for my skin. I use witch hazel as a toner, after-shave, and for when my skin is irritated. It has so many uses! If I have a zit, I use lavender oil, which works better than any other spot treatment and is gentler on your skin. I also wear sunscreen almost year round.

I have quite dry skin so I use LUSH’s facemask: Oatifix about once every 2/3 days (it smells yummy too!)
On a daily basis i use my Clean&Clear skin energising facial scrub in the morning, followed by some E45 cream, i let that soak in my skin before applying abit of LUSH’s skin drink (made for dry skin) :)
At night i’ll use Cetaphil’s gent;e skin cleanser (it works amazing for senstive skin and dry skin and/or acne)
